Lehigh University originally learned about the water problem in Pueblo Nuevo through members of an archaeology program that traveled to the area. Students created a chapter of EWB-USA and teams traveled to the town for a preliminary evaluation in the summer of 2006. The team designed a 20,000-gallon water storage tank for the town of Pueblo Nuevo to combat the water quantity problem. The tank is located at a higher elevation than the rest of the town, which will enables water to be gravity-fed from the tank to every home. Water is fed to the tank from an existing spring with help from a pump. Construction of this tank was finished in the fall of 2008.
